While TJ has been in story of late on General Hospital, now comes news that actor Tequan Richmond has been in cast in a very promising pilot for a new series for Showtime!

According to Deadline, the untitled hourlong drama is described as a relevant, timely and distinctive coming-of-age story of a young African-American male in which just growing up can be a matter of life and death.  The pilot will film in Chicago later this year.

Tequan will play Emmett, an attractive, young African-American teen who believes his sexual prowess is what defines him. But there are consequences, as he has fathered three children by three different women. However, his attitude about what it means to be a man will be challenged when he’s forced to raise one.

Under the Dome’s Aisha Hines will play the role of is Jada, Emmett’s young, single mother. Jada is strong, smart, a survivor, with a surprising mix of honesty, anger, humor and love.

What do you think of Tequan’s new role?  Share your thoughts below!

Maybe that means he is FINALLY leaving and we can be rid of TJ for good! The character never clicked, and I never felt the role should’ve been recast in the first place; it shouldn’t been written out forever ago.

I’m with you Scott. The TJ character is not needed. I think Tequan is talented and I’m happy for him getting this opportunity, but I’ve never cared for TJ.

RE: the new character he’s playing…
The kid is 22 years old in real life) and he’s fathered 3 kids with 3 women? Has a young, angry, single mother? Really?

Stereotyping much?

I like this kid. Great opportunity for him. I would, though, be disappointed if he was recast on GH. His character seems to be regretting more airtime and he’s so likeable! Be interesting to see him on Showtime’s

Auto correct needs spell check! Getting more airtime…not regretting! And…interesting to see him in such a different role…He plays such an innocent on GH.

Tequan is very talented, he will go far.
It is a very good and exciting for him to spread his wings and fly..
GH is a nation of excellent talent, the best actors by far.
I can understand how some have been offered to move on and out of a soap into the big time.

I hope he will stay on with GH as recurring.

I know this is great news for the actor but I hate to see him off of GH. I’m glad they have been using him more. Hope he doesn’t get written off via being killed.

I agree w/suOOOO & Reagan. Let’s keep our fingers crossed

I wish the actor the best. However, I hope this signals the end of the TJ character. There are many more interesting characters that have been sidelined and the actors moved to recurring while this character remained with nothing interesting to do or say.

isn’t he a contract player on GH? he must have an out if he gets a pilot or something it just doesn’t make sense for contract players to try an book other tv shows unless its like a guest starting role, but lead on a pontential show? oh well, its not like the show utilize him a lot, like always the show under utilize him while he was on contract, so good for him…

T.J.’s character is growing on me. However, I never understood how he hated his mother because she’s been undercover ; yet, he’s crazy about Sonny! Help me understand that reasoning.

Good luck. Now moving on. Perfect time to recast and age TJ.

Exactly…

I’m glad that he’s getting a lead role in a new series but I hope that ABC doesn’t kill him off of GH. I think he’s good for the show, myself. One character, however, that I never thought worked out was the character of, “Rafe”, who ABC seemed to kill off pretty quickly.

And, I was watching GH this afternoon during a hospital scene with “Carly” & “Sonny” and he actually made a blooper during the scene! He’s supposed to be totally out of it and heavily medicated since he got “shot”, right? Well, this afternoon Carly was talking to his character and, honestly, I saw him blink his eyes when he’s supposed to be acting like he’s in a coma or heavily medicated.

My Mom/Dad & I all thought that was kinda funny. LOL!

Speaking of “bloopers” & “blooper reels”, I really miss shows like that on television these days….

Possibly a recast for TJ (aged). I thought i read somewhere that he was in his twenties. However info came from soap twitter so I don’t know how reliable any news would be. Either some kin to Val or Jordan?

Leading lady- hmmm Sam? Wishful thinking on my part
Elizabeth has her hands and arms full. Not Carly. I don’t see him being for Anna.
Is Sonny going to be bitter and push Carly away if he is indeed going to be paralyzed? Maybe Carly but her go to has always been Sonny when shes afraid or excited. So again not Carly.
Is Hayden considered a leading lady? Don’t know what the Writers have in store once she learns Nik tried to kill her? But i want her with Nik in spite of it. They could laugh about it over coffee after they get married. Private joke between married ppl.

You gave me a great idea…
Could be a Quartermaine about whom no one is aware. Is that possible? Justus Ward’s son? Perhaps he’a half brother of Valerie, tlove. That is, if Patricia had Valerie with Justus…hey, big mystery-story could come out of this, yes?

tlove
tlove

Yes. That is possible. It will tie Valerie in more to PC. Bringing in the extended Quatarmaine family-i believe i read somewhere that they were doing that?

CeeCee
CeeCee

@tlove.
Hi,
I haven’t read that anywhere…it may be true. But a few months ago, when Valerie joined the cast, we were all speculating what the motive for Valerie staying on was; and, to whom she could be connected, that is, what core family. I believe Rose and I had a discussion on this very subject, that is Valerie’s paternity. Rose had proposed that Patricia could have had Valerie with Justus. So, that possibility never left my mind.

How he gets killed. jumps in front of Sonny, maybe Michael will get his head examined and remember why he took Avery away from the danger that’s living with the mob. before anyone gets the idea I mean the actor. I mean the character. I feel for Jordan but maybe he could jump in front of her instead .A bullet meant for Sonny. Good Luck Tequan. He can act.

Paging Dr. Griffin Munro! Matt Cohen Makes A Return Visit To GH

Looks like a medical crisis will bring Matt Cohen (Griffin Munro) back to General Hospital today on Friday’s episode and next week on upcoming episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

In addition, we wonder if Cohen might appear in scenes with Maura West, who’s Ava Jerome is checked into Shadybrook trying to deal with her emotional state, which unbeknownst to her is being caused by Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma).

As GH fans know, Cohen first came on to the GH scene back in 2016, but departed the series earlier in 2019.

Meanwhile, Matt has landed a gig on Entertainment Tonight as one of their correspondents and anchors while continuing to do directing, and acting projects.

What will bring Griffin back to Port Charles? Happy to see Matt again on GH? Comment below.
